Welcome to the website of the "Enterprise Platform and Integration Concepts" (EPIC) group.
Our activities are focused on the following research topics:
In-Memory Data Management for Enterprise Applications
Human-Centered Software Design and Engineering
In-Memory Data Management for Life Sciences
Our group includes PostDocs, PhD students, and student assistants, and is headed by Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner. If you are interested in our work or want to join our team, please contact Dr. Matthias Uflacker.
Our team is giving a series of lectures and seminars with a focus on enterprise systems design and in-memory data management. Strong links to the industry ensure a close connection between theory and its implementation in the real world.
Our research focuses on the technical aspects of business software and the integration of different software systems to meet customer requirements. This involves studying the conceptual and technological aspects of in-memory databases, design principles, and programming methods for enterprise applications.
We continually strive to translate our research into practical outputs that improve the quality of enterprise applications. A close link to industry partners ensures relevance and impact of our work. Get here an overview of our current and previous projects.
Prof. Plattner's research group focuses on the technical aspects of business software and the integration of different software systems to meet customer requirements. This involves studying the conceptual and technological aspects of systems for data management and business process support. In customer-centered business software development, the focus is on the users. And developing solutions tailored to user needs in a timely manner requires well-designed methods, tools, and software platforms.
Our current activities are focused on the following research topics:
We are proud to announce our book " A Course in In-Memory Data Management" by Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner. This book is the culmination of six years work of in-memory research. As such, it provides the technical foundation for combined transactional and analytical workloads inside the same database as well as examples of new applications that are now possible given the availability of the new technology. The book is now available at Amazon.
